I believe these two items to be Cypraea Tigris but the form is strange looking and the weight is very light compared to others the same size. These are both about 67mm Philippine shells. Thank you Richard

Yes Richard,
Both are Cypraea tigris but juvenile.
Cypraea shells get thicker and heavier when getting older.  <span class="petit">--Last edited by conchylinet on 2009-02-07 04:45:00 --</span>
